I wanted some advice, unfortunately my Dad never bothered to take out any insurance. And myself and husband just about manage to cover our bills. He is only one working so we cant claim any benefits, as without these benefits they wont help with it.
My Dad is doing ok in the care home but I do worry about when his time comes that I just don't have the money to pay for it all. I am an only child as well which makes it worse so there will be no one to turn to for financial help towards it. Dads family don't seem to want to know, his brother is quite well of I think, but he does not want to know really. He knows I wont have to money but he doesn't seem to care really.
Plus I have health issues myself as well on top. I just dont get any support at all from the family. To be honest with you all, if it wasnt for my husband, I would not have anyone at all to turn to. I tried ages ago to discuss the issue of Dad and funeral expenses and uncle wasnt interested. Because they dont want any responsibility of everything. Uncle just said there will be people there. not family "people" Charming.
Anyways, if anyone can give advice on funeral subjects when person left has no money to pay for this, what happens then? I was told council only pay if there are no family.
Help appreciated thanks.
